Cathay Pacific WILL start flights to Washington DC with A350-1000s - Dec 2017
Cathay Pacific has confirmed they will start flights to Washington DC, capital of the United States and home of Donald Trump from 15th September, 2018. This will be the longest Cathay flight ever! There will be 4 flights per week to start off with using the new Airbus A350-1000. There will be Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class seats available on board.
The flight times are not ideal in the direction of DC, since they will arrive at 10:20pm at night. By the time you reach the hotel, it would most definitely be midnight! Fortunately, the return flights are better since they leave Washington just after midnight and arrive at Hong Kong very early in the morning. Flights towards DC are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays while those back to Hong Kong are scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
But still, what can Cathay gain from this flight? Please leave some comments below.
